My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1681: Update Time!

01-15-2016 01:45 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

As the second week of the new year comes to a close, I find myself reflecting. Not so much on the year 2015, but on the last two weeks – the beginning of 2016. It has been a crazy ride so far, with many wonderful things happening. It seems our customer base is growing every day, and I have had lots and lots of orders to fill.Even though it has been a lot of hard work, I find myself happy and grateful. After all – this is what I have been striving for the past several years. I have...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1605: There's Hope

08-12-2015 11:06 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday I had to skip posting. Our internet had become so spotty that it was difficult to stay online for any length of time. Over the past couple of weeks, both Keith and I noticed the problem was getting worse. The thing that got us wondering though was that much of the time it would work fine, but then it would be 'dragging' for increasing lengths of time. Sometimes hours. It is funny how dependent we have become on the internet. Not only for our business, but for our every ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1581: . . . and Then There Were FIVE!

06-30-2015 11:50 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I stayed quite busy yesterday, doing one of the things that I love to do. I really love so many of my creative aspects, and switching from one to the other back and forth always seems to keep me freshly excited about every one of them. Yesterday I spent the day at the saw. I had my headphones on and I was into a 'classical' mood. I got lost listening to my three favorite composers – Rachmoninoff, Beethovan and Mozart. It made a good thing even better. Before long, the three...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1563: "The Zone"

05-29-2015 11:30 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I had an amazingly productive day yesterday! It was one of those days that went somewhat like this:     - I had a plan     - I set a goal     - I stayed FOCUSED     - I worked     - I got the job DONE! It isn't that I don't always TRY to work like this. But most of us know that many days, we make plans to accomplish things and even with our best efforts, sometimes life just gets in the way. It happens to m...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1512: BUNNIES!!!!!

03-09-2015 12:54 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I had a good and busy weekend! It just goes to show that when I set my mind to doing things, I can really accomplish a lot. On Friday I finished up three drawings for new patterns.  It may not seem like a lot, but I keep adding little extras to make them even more special and allow those who purchased the patterns to do lots with them.To me, patterns are much more than just handing off some line work. Especially in scroll sawing, where the lines are what we follow with the saw. While the...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1435: "Unstuck"

11-02-2014 01:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

Well, it appears that I am on the 'other side'. Whatever was causing my creative block has moved on, and things are once again moving in a positive direction. I wish I knew what caused those little hiccups in my creative process. As I said the other day – I think all designers and creative people go through it at one time or another. When we are in the midst of that 'creative block' we simply can't understand why nothing seems to feel right. Is it mood? The weat...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1423: More Pull Toys

10-15-2014 10:59 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday was a wonderful and relaxing day for me.  Not only did we have the pleasure of Keith's mom's company all day, but she brought with all the remains of our Thanksgiving dinner from Sunday. Talk about a treat! :)I truly love turkey dinners and I am not the type of person that gets tired of it easily. Since our families are a much smaller these days, creating an entire meal usually means lots and lots of leftovers. Some may complain about that, but not me! I can think of a ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1364: To The Scroll Saw!

07-21-2014 12:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I was able to finish up my drawing yesterday. Whether or not I was able to squeak the project in under the deadline for submissions remains to be seen. I honestly was not sure of the cutoff date, but in some ways (to me, anyway) it didn't really matter. Either way I wanted to create these designs. Either way I win. As time goes by and and I do what I do longer and longer, I have discovered that there are a world of options open for me. I used to get rather tense about deadlines and t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1311: Some Beautiful Work and a Video From a Friend

05-06-2014 10:37 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Today I am doing some cutting for the topper for my banners and writing the patterns packet, so I really don't have much of my own work to show you. However, I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to share a video with you that my friend Leldon Maxcy just made on how to cut inlay pieces for scroll sawn ornaments.I have known Leldon for probably about 15 years.  That's pretty long considering how young he is!  I met him at a woodworking show when he was only a ...
